“This is a dream house; it's hard to imagine a more perfect place in which to stay.”
Reviewed 13 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Skeabost wood cottage is a spectacular place in which to stay, a beautiful building on the edge of woodland, with stunning views. ‘Cottage’ is a misnoma, for this is a spacious house, the huge windows drawing one right into the landscape. It was a delight to just sit - in comfort - gazing at the distant hills as they changed according to the light and weather (often within minutes !). And then there were the birds, rapidly polishing off the food in the bird feeders at voracious speed.
As other reviewers have pointed out, Skeabost is superbly equipped, well maintained, and impeccably clean: there is a magnificent kitchen, complete with dishwasher (though with our old fashioned habits we searched in vain for a tea towel). There is also a magnificent music system (no need to worry about disturbing the neighbours). The bathroom is luxurious (but important to study the instructions before tackling the three tap shower).
Beautiful architecture creates a sense of well being and this is exactly what Skeabost does. We would have loved to know more about the design, its architect, the materials and the way it was constructed. This is the dream house which everyone would surely love to own. It is hard to imagine a more perfect and idyllic place for a holiday.

“Lovely accomodation in an amazing place”
Reviewed 11 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed here in early March for four nights. The accomodation was lovely. Clean, modern, superbly equipped and the views throughout the property were a real treat! The cottage is ideally situated a short drive from Portree but is far enough away to make you fee like you are out in the wilds. I would thoroughly recommend Skeabost Wood Cottage - fantastic value for the price and we will be back!

“What a wonderful place !”
Reviewed 24 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

First of all, our intention is to go back to Skeabost. We just fell in love with the isle of Skye and…with this house. Greater and larger than we thought, even more beautiful than on the pictures. Everything is designed for your comfort and your happiness.
We appreciated all those nice details like lovely soaps, lotion in the bathroom or loo, a bottle of Proseco in the fridge, coffee, tea, biscuits, etc…
You feel as if you were visiting friends. Personal details in the house decoration make it special. It is not just a renting as many others. We have been renting places all over the world. This house is among the best places we ever visited. Definitely not a show house as we could read in a previous review.
Regarding the WiFi connection, we had no problem with it.
Though the cellular phone is really hard to operate in Skye (sometimes it works on the 1rst floor) we could easily use WhatsApp or Facetime.
Also we like cooking and enjoyed the kitchen equipment. Particularly the Le Creuset pots and saucepans.
Perfect week in a perfect house ! Congratulations to the architect and to the owner.

Good location, excellent accommodation, very comfortable and fantastic view framed by the large windows. The complimentary bottle of Prosciutto was appreciated. Thank you.
